It had started snowing last night before 7pm. It was light and fluffy, not wet and icky, which is a good thing. I went to bed earlier than usual, before 2AM, maybe even before 1, which is very rare. I remember thinking to myself with rather remarkable enthusiasm... I get to shovel snow in the morning! I could hear the snowplows going up and down the streets somewhere between 1 and 2 and then again when I looked at the time around 5 and 6. I know I got a bit more sleep than usual, but again woke up feeling tired. I bundled up, opened the door and wow. Pretty.
I was out there for an hour and a half. Backstairs, short path to frontstairs, frontwalk, front sidewalk, side sidewalk. I didn't finish the whole thing though.... 180 feet of sidewalk, being 8 feet wide with 8" of snow.
I've been here almost nine years now and the shovelling of snow has been a welcome task. I would even clear the drain areas at the corner of the sidewalk, which wasn't my responsibity, but I was right there, so why not? Two years ago the local government determined that the sidewalks in front of people's houses must be cleared by the property owners. I didn't really mind doing it, and still don't mind, but the thing is the sidewalk is not ON my property, it is on theirs, and I live on the corner. Oh well, c'est la vie.
I did stop in the midst of shovelling to get more pictures and hopefully will find something else worth posting.
I may feel or look like this, but without the beer.
Always liked this song by Incubus. "I Miss You"
HAVE I GONE TOTALLY DAFT and SAPPY? Nope. I found this video on YouTube and it made me smile. i.e. "If I promise not to kill you, can I have a hug?"
Need a smile?
I have had the Minions "Banana" clip here for a few years, but lately it has switched to "Autoplay", when the blog is loading, but I don't see it in the embed code, so I've just removed it today. Dec 11, 2016
